Naipaul signature by Francis A. Miniter[_2_]
I bought a copy of V. S. Naipaul's The Masque of Africa (2010) at a book sale a week ago. Last night I looked more carefully at it and found that the author had signed it on the title page just above his name. This is the first signature I have of a Nobel Laureate. Francis A. Miniter

A Separate Peace...John Knowles by Weathers123
I recently found a copy dated 1959....from the International Collectors Library. Now, I know that most of ICL's books aren't really worth anything.
